The airbrush artists at Tanique Airbrush Tanning trick skin cells into thinking they've been in the sun with the help of a bronzing solution; creating an effect that can last from 7 to 10 days, if properly maintained. This solution can be applied at the salon or during mobile sessions, such as spray-tanning parties that, unlike typical UV-based bronzing events, don't end with a tanning bed covered in melted ice-cream cake.

Mirror Mirror Salon’s stylists tend to the hair and skin with slew of advanced serums, including products from Davines Haircare and Dermalogica. Though the hair techs reserve specialty services—such as keratin and texturizing treatments—for female clients, they still welcome men, women, and children alike to drop in for a cut. The salon complements hair services with facials and waxing services that prevent hyper-progressive hairstyles such as the forearm fauxhawk. They also tackle the phalanx of beauty procedures that often accompany weddings, including special nuptial packages.

At Ambition Salon, Kerrie Denning treats clients to helpings of styling expertise, as well as a host of nourishing hair and skin treatments. During the cut and condition, Kerrie deftly wields scissors to transform tresses into stylish new ‘dos. To restore lost luster, a keratin conditioning treatment swathes hair in a nutrient-rich blend that penetrates strands to fight frizz and leave locks as shiny and smooth as a bodybuilder dolphin. For an epidermal makeover, expertly applied spray tans impart bodies with a bronzed and healthful glow. A sunless alternative to tanning beds, spray sessions deliver skin-kissed color without the health risks of UV-ray exposure. Alternately, waxing services help defuzz faces, quickly facilitating the face’s breakup process with unwanted hair and saving clients the awkwardness of having to divide up shared DVD collection.
